Accordium is an interesting premium design that would be suitable for a blog or portfolio. It has a simple design that lists the latest posts posts and pages with featured thumbnails.
The theme hides a lot of the content. The top of the page denotes the area of the site you are in. If you place your cursor close to this area a sub navigation area is shown that lists categories etc. The sidebar is also hidden. The left column which displays the main navigation menu remains there permanently however there is a secret sidebar between this left column and the main content area. By clicking on the + symbol at the top of the page, the area slides open to display the content. It’s a unique way integrating a sidebar into a website design though I can’t help think that it just isn’t that practical as many users may not even realise it’s there.
The main content area slides down to show content when you click on an article. Images and videos are displayed here and the article excerpt too though you can click on the read more link to read the article in full with comments etc.
A regular license for Accordium retails for $35. It’s a very basic theme in many respects though would be perfect for a simple blog or portfolio.
